Applying to polsci PhD programs this Fall and am looking for some recommendations on where to apply. I'm interested in a few topics within sub-Saharan Africa: elections and party formation, political violence and corruption. Can be more specific if needed. Thanks!
Is there anybody out there? What are you guys planning to work on, what are you reading etc. etc.? I'm currently working on social welfare in South Africa but am planning to branch out for my PhD research and work on race, identity and discourses on the state in twentieth century southern Africa. Would love to hear what other new research is on the cards
Hello All! Thanks to all who share and contribute here. This is my first post here. I am interested in a PhD focusing on Political Economy of African Development with a focus more on economic development and growth, democraticization and governance. I am not particularly keen on the conflict/civil war aspect of political economy of African development. 1. What programs, institutions in the US are ranked highest? 2. What professors are the leading thinkers and researchers in the field? 3. Would you recommend pursuing this via a Political Science Phd or an Economics PhD? Thanks so much!
